At first I thought Tomatillo, but I think you're right with Kiwi plant.

That looks like a kiwi plant.  As it is well behaved and hasn't taken over the greenhouse, I would guess at the variety being a dwarf one.

Thankyou - I suspected it was something 'useful' given how it had been given some support. This is my 3rd year on this plot and it hasn't flowered in the last 2 but as it doesn't get in the way of anything I grow I'll leave it in and see what happens.

I have tried long and hard to identify this weed but have failed. It is fairly common on our allotment site but, fortunately, is easy to deal with as it is rather shallow rooted.

Looks like a close relative of Fat Hen which we call "Mother of thousands" . Has reddish colour and is low growing with lots and lots of seeds.

I noticed this in my ericaceous bed a few weeks ago.  I didn't inspect it in any detail, and it looked very much like chives, so I wondered if I'd stuck them in last year (to see what happened) and forgotten!   ::)

It's now about 30" tall, and definitely not chives!  It doesn't smell of anything, and is hollow in the middle with small 'tufts' part way up the stems -  I've noticed that I now have another 2 clumps growing.

 I'll hoik them out, but if they're nothing to worry about I'll pot them up as they're quite nice (like an ornamental grass).  :)

Yes, it is.  :)  The closest I've found (after a lot of Gurgling) is a soft rush?

rushes often like it wet and acidic.
the "furry" type thing on the stems are were the seeds are produced helping spread plants about.

The first picture looks very much like a teasel, loved by goldfinches, but I don't know what the others are.
